Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40S2000 40 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

I have a Sony KDL-40S2000 LCD TV. From the left bottom half of the screen, the picture is dark. I'm not sure if it is the inverter or the bulb, is there an easy method to test? Here is a link to a picture I've taken of the TV.http://imageshack.com/a/img542/1351/fwj2.jpg

Hello,
I looked at your screen shot of the symptom you are experiencing and it would appear that the very bottom and possibly the next one up CCFL (cold Cathode Florescent Lamp(s)) could be in trouble. If the inverter board(s) was bad the tv would just shut down and blink 4 times but seeing the tv operational but just a dark area near the bottom I would have to say you need to investigate the CCFL problem and replace the affected lamps.
Good Luck!

SOURCE: I have a sony Bravia KDL-52W3000 LCD tv. Approx.

I have the same tv with the same problem. My tv is about 3 1/2 years old. I took it to the shop yesterday and today they told me that I had a bad lcd panel and a bad FL1 circuit board. They also told me it was going to be $3800.00 dollars to fix. I am now on my way to buy another tv, needless to say it will not be a Sony. Sony knows about this problem and refuse to do anything about it. Good luck.

Why is sony bravia dark screen


If your TV seems to be darker than you think it should be, it is possible that the problem is with the light sensor. The light sensor will automatically adjust the picture brightness based on the ambient light that is in the room, (i.e. if the room is bright the picture will also be bright, if it is dark the picture will also be dark).

To turn this feature off go to Settings > General Setup > Light Sensor.

Large area at top of the screen is not bright , constant, appears like atop filament of a bulb is blown?


chances are you have a bad inverter board. It can cause half the screen to be dark if a portion of it is bad. There is also the chance that a phosphor lamp could be bad in the panel but usually that would cause the set to shut down.

Same problem KDL-40S2000, no picture on any input, but do get sound. Picture glows when powered on and if I tap the back or sides I get white flashes on the screen, but nothing shows on the screen.


I would replace the bulb.Sounds like it maybe bad,I would try to reseat the bulb then if that doesn't work then replace it.Do any of the power buttons flash when you turn it on?

Sony Bravia - picture don't fit the screen


I have a Scientific Atlanta cable box w/ Time Warner. I followed the instructions below for the cable box. Somehow it reset my picture and I can now read the ticker at the bottom of the screen and the different picture sizes seem to work properly. Good Luck.
